Doping dependence of the specific heat of single-crystal BaFe2(As1-xPx)2
(American Physical Society, 2012-05)
We present specific heat measurements on a series of BaFe2(As1-xPx )2 single crystals with phosphorous doping ranging from x = 0.3 to x = 0.55. Our results reveal that BaFe2(As1-xPx )2 follows the scaling C/Tc ≈ T ...
